Morning Joe Crew Blame Hip Hop Music For Oklahoma Fraternity Racist Chants

It's always convenient for conservatives to blame the ills of society on rap music and doody words.

Oklahoma University hit the headlines when Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members at the Norman campus participated in a racist chant that was caught on video.

There's no defense when you chant about lynchings and whatnot, but for some reason the Morning Joe crew debated long and hard about the influence of Rap/Hip Hop Music over those students that participated and blamed their racism on music.

So when we see the chyron during their segment "FALLOUT At OKLAHOMA UNIVERSITY" the only thing Joe and his esteemed guests could come up with was that rappers use doody words in their songs and record labels make profits off of those doody words.

Simple, much?

I don't find these chants resembling rap music at all. It's more like a sick nursery rhyme, but you know, rappers suck because - doody words - freedom!

Duncan writes about the hypocrisy behind the f-bomb.

UPDATE: Waka Flocka Flame is the Devil according to the Morning Joe crowd.
